Some brands are using Pinterest like a pro, while others are focused on those other social media sites (you know the ones). ...more
For the record, we believe that both of these Popes did amazing things for the world during their Papacies, as well as before being Popes! We are not Catholic, and while the 'miracles' do seem a bit of a stretch, we celebrate these two New 'Modern' Saints and their contributions to mankind!

NICK SQUIRES, THE TELEGRAPH
A woman whose “miraculous” recovery from an inoperable brain aneurysm paved the way for the late Pope John Paul II to be declared a saint at a ceremony at the Vatican this weekend has described how the Polish pontiff appeared to her in a vision.
Floribeth Mora Diaz, from Costa Rica, will be a guest of honour at the ceremony on Sunday, when Pope Francis will canonise two of his predecessors – John Paul II and John XXIII, the Italian pontiff nicknamed “the Good Pope” who initiated reforms to the Catholic Church in the 1960s. ....more
A life-long collector of Elephants, I love these huge, awesome beasts! It seems as if they will always be with us, but as you well know, that is not the case. Loss of their habitats, natural enemies, environmental issues, and illegal Ivory hunting are but a few of the threats that they face daily. Let's all try to help these beautiful animals in any way that we can.
You know ways to help, and here are some others.

By Natalia Jimenez - NBC News
Fashion photographer David Bailey captured Queen Elizabeth’s youthful spirit ahead of her 88th birthday on April 21.
"I've always been a huge fan of the Queen. She has very kind eyes with a mischievous glint,” said Bailey according to Britain’s Press Association. “I've always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman."
His affable nature behind-the-lens helped catch the oft photographed Queen with a more candid expression than what is seen in her typical formal portraits.

Mattel reports loss as Barbie sales plummet
New York (AFP) - Toymaker Mattel has a problem: Barbie's performance has not been very pretty of late.
Sales of the iconic blond dolls tumbled 14 percent in the first quarter, the second straight quarter to see a double-digit decline.
Barbie's slump comes as Mattel and other toymakers contend with bloated product inventories and a cut-throat retail environment that has pinched profits and pushed toymakers into cost-cutting mode.
Mattel, reporting a quarterly loss of $11.2 million on lower sales, has slashed its inventory of toys, downsized its staff of 28,000 by 1.5 percent and employed strict data analysis to determine marketing priorities, company officials said.

wenty thousand dollars is a lot of money. It could be a down payment on a home. It could pay off the lion's share of an average college graduate's student loan debt. Or it could buy you a whole lot of cute. According to the folks at Veterinary Pet Insurance, $20,000 is also the average cost of raising a dog from puppy through, well, the end. Granted, Veterinary Pet Insurance (a subsidiary of insurance-giant Nationwide) is trying to sell you its product, and plenty of people manage to raise a dog for less. But you do have to feed them, cover medical expenses, pay for dog-sitters or walkers if you travel, and buy the occasional bone or tennis ball. But if you'd like some furry companionship for a lot less, one alternative is to become a dog foster home.

MIAMI (Reuters) - Inside a small bright lab, nestled behind sprawling Banyan trees in Miami's Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, scientists and volunteers tend to tens of thousands of just-germinated orchids tucked in glass bottles.
Fifty thousand more with long verdant leaves wait in a nearby nursery. In the coming weeks, crews in bucket trucks, usually used to fix power lines, will lift the fragile plants onto trees that line south Florida's roads, hoping they will take root and re-establish the blanket of millions of brightly colored flowers that once covered the state.
"We want to bring back not just the orchids, but the insects that pollinate them," said Carl Lewis, who leads the Million Orchid Project as director of the botanic garden.
